Man it chaps my butt. Ugh!!!! It's a never ending game during the warmer months. It gets all over everything does not work and UGH!!!!!
Yeah, I have to say, there is a section of a county that I don't often ride, simply for that reason! The county is so poor they fill pot holes like that, and the roads are crumbling so bad, it's like riding a road bike on a mountain trail!
There's a word I haven't heard in ages, esp not from this area: "criminy". Sometimes we use "criminently"... means the same....lol
